Chiropractic treatment for fibromyalgia: A systematic review - Source: Clinical Rheumatology, Jun 21, 2009

Many patients use chiropractic as a treatment of fibromyalgia, and many chiropractors seem to be convinced that it is effective for that condition.

The aim of the study was to conduct a systematic review of randomized clinical trials testing the effectiveness of chiropractic care for fibromyalgia. Six electronic literature searches were conducted. No language restrictions were applied. Data extraction and validation were carried out by two independent reviewers.

Three studies met the inclusion criteria. Their methodological quality was poor.

They generated no evidence to suggest that chiropractic care is effective for fibromyalgia.

Currently, there is insufficient evidence to conclude that chiropractic is an effective treatment for fibromyalgia.

I do not agree at all with this article. After going from doctor to doctor, physical therapyc for years and years, the only thing that has given me back some of my old self is chiropractic treatment. Sure there are good chiropractors and bad as well as good medical doctors and bad.I found a good chiropractor and he has made a huge difference in my every life.
